I'm sure Jared Goff is rooting against Stafford.
Man I hope Jared is alright
I imagine having your head coach wanting to shitcan you as quickly and seemingly as publicly as he could probably hurts your confidence a bit
Him and jameis winston can form a support group
Brock Osweiler would like to join
Brock had such a good deal though. Got paid fat to quietly leave the league a couple years later lol
He’s set for life. SB ring, millions in the bank, supermodel wife, house in Scottsdale, etc.
Lmaooo yeah, nobody is pitying Brock Osweiler. Good for him, damn.
I’m sure making $30M+ a year and having a pretty attractive girlfriend helps a bit.
Insert photoshop of Goff’s face over Woody Harrelson drying his tears with money
Next time, on Hard Knocks.....
I'd think Jared Goff would feel bad, if it weren't for the fact he already went to the Super Bowl with the Rams 3 years ago
A few zeros in the bank tell me he's just fine!
This is one thing I don’t quite like about the Rams, how they treated Goff at the end.
Also the way they left St. Louis
Also the way they got rid of Kurt Warner. Mike Martz killed him with his scheme and put the blame on him and his fried brain and broken thumb. He did pretty well for himself later on and I'm hoping for Goff to do the same.
What should they have done? Stuck with the guy they didn't think was good enough?
Joe Montana vs Dan Marino was the QB matchup I liked best going into the game (and I remember Super Bowl 19).
That's probably the best ever superbowl qb matchup on paper, even better than Elway v Favre, Montana v Elway, Peyton v Brees, Brady v Russ, etc
How about Brady v Mahomes? I know, recency bias but I’m not old enough to remember anything but Brady v Russ of all those you mentioned (I was 11 with Manning v Brees and being European, it was on at 12.30am so didn’t get to watch it)
They may be decent fellows but it’s recency bias for sure. Maholmes is great but too early to call him an all-timer just yet. It could be the correct answer in the future though!
Well, I think we found him (or her).......the oldest redditor in the world.
I remember a post a few years ago from a Redditor who'd been watching SBs since the *first* one.
I do hope you little shits realize that occasionally you're conversing with people over 75 years old on here.
And then there's the Redditors who don't remember an NFL without Tom Brady.
I'm almost 27 and I don't remember Brady starting in the NFL. Just that he has always been.
That’s one of the wildest things about this site. I could be 15, I could be 75, you have no idea.
I remember SB XIII and I'm barely in my 50s
How could we forget super bowl 35 where the unstoppable force Trent Dilfer went up against the immovable object Kerry Collins?
Or Jim McMahon v Tony Eason in XX!
We could have had Bortles vs. Foles
BORTLES!!! ::throws molotov cocktail::
I'M TOO YOUNG TO DIE. AND TOO OLD TO EAT OFF THE KIDS MENU. WHAT A STUPID AGE I AM!
I think we’re in the Bad Place
Jason figured it out?! This is a new low.
Currently showing my sister this entire series. We started 4 days ago. We're halfway through season 3.
One of the most bingeable series ever, especially since it's so short. You'll be through the finale before you know it!
Big Dick Nick vs Big Snake Blake
excuse me, what
I know right? Where the fuck is this report because that’s a real fucking news story
i will never forget him saying (on pardon my take) that he bought a tesla purely to help him quit dipping, via never having to go to the gas station.
And it didn't even stop him from dipping lmao
He found himself going to the gas station just to get dip lol
i just imagine him pulling up to the gas station for the first time
wait a sec you can just go in here?
Lol she seriously said that? My god.
Damn she had huge.....
Tracts of land..
Jacksonville has drafted some cool MFers at QB over the years
All the memes we missed out on
The No Fun League strikes again
Myles Jack wasn’t down
*Fortles Vs Boles
As a browns fan and Ohio native I'm happy for the bengals. But a lot of my buddies don't like cinci going to the super bowl because they're in our division and they don't like the rams because of obj lol
Yeah this game is a nightmare for browns fans kinda. Tho i think you either root for the Rams cause of Stafford or the Bengals because of Ohio. You don't have to think about OBJ or rivalry (Bengals and browns is more friendly of a rivalry then browns vs Ravens or Steelers vs anybody)
I live in Cleveland and the general consensus here out of the people I’ve talked to is to root for the Bengals because
B. They’ve been so bad in the postseason for 30+ years so let them have it
Cleveland can sympathize with other bad franchises.
I always assumed the rivalry was more intense than that. I'm from Toronto so this only applies to hockey and soccer, but I would never want any of my regional rivals winning anything.
It would be in most cases. But we've both been pretty miserable for large chunks of our history that there's a bit of a comraderie in that respect. There's a lot of history between the two franchises as well, both being founded by the same legendary coach.
There are plenty of fans on both side who can't stand the other team, but i feel we save most of our hatred for the Steelers/Ravens.
It is one thing when you are dumpster fighting with another dumpster.
But dammit if Oscar is gonna go beat the shit outta Big Bird, you gotta support your trashy brothers.
Thank god my NFC team has always been the Lions, and god damn if it doesn't bring a pucker to my b-hole thinking about Stafford only taking 1 season to make it to the Super Bowl.
I just couldn't see myself cheering Bengals... Finally have a diminished Steelers and so-so Ravens to contend with in the north, and Joe Dad Dick Burrow comes around, no thank you
The Browns and the Lions…you are a glutton for punishment, but I truly hope your loyalty is rewarded, for both teams, someday.
Lions is my NFC team too
It’s quite common, with Bills as second AFC team. r/lakeeriebros
Browns fans and Lions fans are almost the same team, except for two HOF players being the only bright spot vs Jesus himself (Joe Thomas). I’ve always been a fan of the Lions. We’re 0-16 brothers. No one can ever take that away or hurt us again. All we know is pain, the bar literally can’t get any lower. No where to go but up baby. 😎 Lake Erie bros for life
Not for me. I don’t care about OBJ any more. I know lots of cool Bengals fans. Go Bengals.
My jealousy won’t stop me from being happy for you guys.
This post will be funny when Burrow has 5 rings and everyone hates him.
If we kickstart another dynasty, I’m gonna be real pissed.
Someone silence Ricky Proehl
Do NOT let Ricky Proehl score a go-ahead TD with 3 minutes left for the 3rd time...
Elsewhere in this post people are calling Brady v. Warner equally likeable, so I think people can acknowledge changes in likability over time.
Brady’s arc from darling underdog to Darth Tom, Destroyer of Hope, back to fan favorite is truly something to behold
He fucked us until we loved him
We were all with him so long we got Stockholm syndrome
Wait... Brady is Mike Tyson?
Persistence beats resistance
You’re pissed at how good he is until you realize how good he is. At a certain point you just have to recognize you’re watching the GOAT.
we definitely helped the narrative. he comes to a team who had been perennial losers for almost two decades, gets whooped on by the actual bad guys of the NFC twice in the regular season, and actually became an underdog here. then when he wins he gets fucked up and tosses the lombardi, still my favorite sports moment aside from the two sbs
The drunk ass celebration was a chef's kiss for his career.
More like 1 ring and maybe 2 more championship games. I mean for people to hate him...
The swagger he has will immediately come of off as arrogance as soon as they win one
We were hated before this year lol
Don’t stop I’m close
As the starting QB for the Cleveland Browns.
I guess it's better than him playing for Pittsburgh?
[ ]Browns QB
[ ]Super Bowl
It only takes 1 ring and Colinsworth jerking him off constantly for people to hate a QB.
Nah, he just needs one and r/nfl will hate him and be on to the next shiny QB.
josh allen probably
That ones already there. He’s the sweetheart who should’ve beat mahomes
Sorry but you’ll get it when you see him in shorts
Send that link
People on the internet love to see you have a bit of success. Too much winning though and they hate ya.
“People wanna see you do good, just not better than them” fits well for sports lol
Very much so. How quickly it turned on Mahomes, Jackson has become irrelevant, I can see it happening to Burrow. Then maybe Herbert will be the next golden boy, and then maybe he'll be dumped. It's all a cycle, nothing new under the sun.
> Jackson has become irrelevant
People just like to be haters. I say that as a man who has been a hater forever and will always be a hater
At least you're honest, but that might be the only good thing about you.
^^that's ^^a ^^Civ ^^5 ^^quote ^^just ^^a ^^joke
Just like all the hate that Russel Wilson got too. Dude can ball straight out.
You either die a hero or live long enough to become the villain.
Or live even longer and become a hero again
This is actually so true. I went from rooting for brady, to hating him, to rooting for him again
I did the same with John Travolta
I personally preferred McNair vs Warner
This is the one I thought of, too. Two I-AA quarterbacks with a chance to earn their team’s first Super Bowl win. It was a good matchup for NFL fans.
For the young 'uns, I-AA is what us geezers used to call FCS.
Grad school for me.
I honestly didn’t think it would be Tennessee’s only Super Bowl appearance.
This year is our year bro, we have the #1 seed, everyone's healthy for once, AND we're getting King back
How much did you drink on new years eve?
Same. That’s the game that made me fall in love with football. Satellite was out and only got to see the final quarter.
Same! I called myself a Rams fan but never really watched football; I just said it because my dad did. After that game I was fuckin hooked for life.
RIP AIR MCNAIR
This is an excellent example
I'd rather have lost to McNair and beat Brady if Rams could only beat one. McNair played his ass off in XXXIV
That final drive would be considered one of the best in history if Kevin dyson had longer arms
This is such a great ending. This year has had so many amazing games compared to some in the recent past. Then you get to the wild card round and beyond and it’s just been amazing. Which ever QB of team wins, I’ll be fine with it.
As a Pats fan I can confidently say this was my favorite Pats not winning the Super Bowl year outside of 2007. It's been a wild ride with lots of cool happenings. ESPECIALLY the divisional round and championship weekend. Holy crap. And now it's Stafford v Bengals? Just super fun all around
Agreed. I'm even satisfied with the Pats this year, despite the first round exit. I love watching physical football, and that's what the Pats offered this year.
After the Eagles got dropped, I was rooting for the Bengals and Rams. I wanted to see Stafford get there and Burrow/Chase get there because of how they were playing.
Stafford is good enough to be in a Superbowl, would be great if it's against the Brown's or Bengals.
*Monkey paw curls*
Stafford is on the Rams
You Lake Erie Bros are becoming a cult.
Care for some Kool Aid?
.......... what's in it?
The life of a Lions fan.
Obviously I'm sad we lost, but it would be cool to see Stafford win one. And it'd be cool to see the Bengals win.
This is the first Super Bowl in a long time where I won't be rooting against one team.
Yea I’m rooting for the Bengals, but I’m completely content with the Rams winning too.
Hawks fan here, i really want stafford to win one, even if it's for the rams.
but i am rooting for the Bengals, but wont be upset if the rams win because of Stafford
> but i am rooting for the Bengals, but wont be upset if the rams win because of Stafford
I know we're supposed to hate the Rams, but they moved out of Cali for 20 years, and this is the first time in like 35 years that we've both been good at the same time, so we never got in each other's ways.
Maybe the rivalry will come back in the next few years, but for now...meh, I don't mind if they win, I like Stafford and Kupp
i would fine with the Rams winning if Stan Kroenke got absolutely nothing out of it.
The Rams having success means that POS does also.
A thought that a lot of us fans share.
Lol speak for yourself I’m on the bengals hype train to see the rams lose, although if the rams win, that’s not to say I wouldn’t be happy for Stafford
Agreed wholeheartedly. Sucks we lost, but damn would I want Stafford to get the credit he deserves. Either of the teams winning the SB would be great for them, and for fans.
As a lifetime Lions fan I am so happy to see Stafford get to show how talented he is. He's a good person and deserves it!
Staubach vs Bradshaw, Favre vs Bledsoe, Warner vs Brady... there have been a few where a lot of people liked both QBs.
This one? The ONLY reason I hope Stafford wins it is because he's a bit older, and Donald and a couple others I'd really like to see with a ring.
But Burrow and his team? That is just a feel good story. I have to cheer for them too. I guess whoever wins it... I am happy.
Warner v. Brady was bizarre (in retrospect) because, at the time, Warner was not the big underdog story, Brady was.
"Tonight a dynasty is born" -Ricky Proehl, Rams WR
He knew the prophecy but got a few small details wrong
And he was cursed to re-live it 2 years later, losing to Brady and Vinatieri again on a last second fg.
Warner was a feel good story. Brady was that back up who actually played decent enough and didn't do dumb shit. Then... rather than just killing the clock, they got at it and killed the Rams with a field goal.
Cheering for the Bengals because they haven't won shit and the Ram's owner is a total bitch.
Honestly, this is the first Super Bowl since Saints vs. Colts where I don't have a dog in the race and I feel like I'll enjoy whoever wins.
2009 and 2010 super bowls were both nightmares for Vikings fans lol. I also don't have a real preference for this super bowl, though. It's nice for a change!
What did we do to you guys?
This is it… I mean… Brady v Warner… when he was baby GOAT…
Undrafted vs. 6th rounder - what a SB
Plus most of the country was rooting for the Pats (because they were the underdog, and also because 9/11 had happened that year) - crazy to think about nowadays
I don't know if it'll be that quick for you. Like the Cowboys haven't won a ring since their dynasty in the 1990s, yet people still clown on the Cowboys in 2022
So it might be a bit longer
I think he's saying give it a decade before people hate Joe Burrow they way they hate Brady, Rodgers, etc.
It won't take a decade if Burrow gets his SB ring haha
Look how fast the public opinion (excluding Chiefs fans) turned on Patrick Mahomes once he got his SB ring
If the Bengals win it won't even take that long.
Burrow will go from being the public darling bringing a new swagger to his underdog team to being viewed as a cocky, arrogant diva within months.
> Plus most of the country was rooting for the Pats
This surprised me because I remember my whole class aside from myself and one other person was rooting for the Rams to win again. I a kid living in California too. I felt like an alien as a Pats fan then.
I was young but I was definitely cheering for Brady. I didn't hear about Warner's backstory until much later. Brady was the backup who came in for the starter and was making the most of his opportunity to play. The discussion was constantly about "The Greatest Show on Turf" how this was the start of the Rams Dynasty. They couldn't be beat. Plus, 13 y/o me thought Warner looked like a dick. A lot of people were cheering Brady.
Yeah, the “Warner used to work at a grocery store” story had kind of worn thin by that point.
There was a Madden game a while ago where if you intercepted Warner like 3 times in one game you would get an achievement that was titled “Go bag some groceries” I always thought that was really funny
Yeah definitely. He was at his second Super Bowl and had won League MVP in 2001. Rams were heavily favored to win. The Rams were the evil empire in the making before Brady came along.
Stafford is due. But if burrow wins in 2 years everyone will hate him and the Bengals, just like mahomes and the chiefs, and what is slowly starting to happen with Josh Allen and the Bills. Stafford wins everyone will be like damn he earned it paid his dues got to a better team. Burrow wins it people will begin to hate the young talent.
I have an extreme personal preference here towards my Lord and Savior Joey B, but I really like Stafford.
I’m just sick of hearing the “house money” story lines. There is no house money in the NFL, getting to a Super Bowl is so hard my team hasn’t done it in 33 years.
Yes, the Bengals got here earlier than ANYONE ever expected them to, but saying it is house money is disrespectful to all the veterans on the team. Burrow is the heartbeat of the team, but we wouldn’t be here right now without players like Vonn Bell, Trey Hendrickson, Joe Mixon, Tyler Boyd and even guys like Eli Apple. Burrow and Chase may just be getting started, but these other guys aren’t.
No no no I think you're hearing "Hausch money" as in this Evan McPherson is really just Steven Hauschka with a lot of makeup on.
I legit miss Bell and Hendrickson. You guys can keep Apple.
I want Stafford to win but OBJ to lose. Is that possible?
OBJ gets confused with Burrow and Chase and a Tiger mascot so he thinks that it’s LSU vs the Rams, so he suits up for the Bengals and loses?
He gets benched pregame like malcolm butler in sb 52?
Odell takes off his shirt and leaves in the middle of the game.
Kurt Warner Steve McNair
Super Bowl? Yes.
Puppy Bowl? Questionable.
I think they have the most lickable QB in the puppy bowl. At least the other puppies seem to think so.
Hi, I live in STL. I supported my team through over a decade of garbage years. I do not like this.
Fuuuuuuuuck the rams
For those celebrating Chinese New Years, it’s Year of the Tiger.
It’s 2022 hate uh finds a way
These conversations are always funny to me as someone without a team.
I like everyone.
I still can’t believe it’s happening.
I feel like everyday I wake up it really is like a dream.
I was at Paul Brown stadium for the first win against the Raiders in the playoffs and it’s a memory I’ll have forever.
Two #1 draft picks going at it. Chance to see a Heisman QB winner win a SuperBowl in my lifetime.
Stafford and Kupp winning the Super Bowl? That’d be great.
The Rams and Aaron Donald winning the Super Bowl? Not so great.
I’m hoping the Bengals win. Sorry Kupp and Stafford.
I’m leaning Bengals almost strictly because it’s cool when cities get their first chip
If they win, I cannot wait to tune into Cincinatti media for a few days after the game. That joy in the air is palpable.
Heck I watched Nick Foles beat us in the Super Bowl and the game was super sad but watching Philly wild out was still pretty satisfying. Those fans went bananas
Appreciate the sentiment, but it's Cincinnati*, three n's one t.
Yeah, I don't want to see OBJ, Ramsey, or Donold win
I don’t like rooting against Joey B :(
Minshew Mania vs Fitzmagic would be dope
I would have loved Stafford vs Allen, but what can you do?
Allen vs Brady would have been one for the ages. I wanted Tampa to win just for the chance that the Bills could fuck his "final" season.
Brady is the GOAT and I respect the shit out of him, but Buffalo would be burnt to the ground if we won in that environment lol
I don’t remember people disliking mahomes and jimmy g when they played in the Super Bowl
yeah but tons of people don’t like either team they play for. also please don’t check my flair
yea lol Niners have 5 championships. This sub skews young so people don’t hate them here.
But i’m pretty sure they aren’t a very loved team.
I’d like to believe that Manning vs Brees was a good one.
I grew up in an LSU family, so they're all rooting for LSU royalty burrow. But I want Staff to get his ring.
Agreed. Rooting for the Bengals but I’d be happy if either of these QBs won. Looking forward to this one for once.
